In Topic: Barricade Rev-10

30 August 2010 - 11:52 PM

Well, most of the games that I play in are short, 1v1 or 2v2 scenario games in an enclosed space. As a result, they never last longer than 15 minutes or so, so I would have no problem leaving the Barricade "on" during the duration...remembering to turn it off, on the other hand, might take some practice :angry:

I can see some of the first mods being

(a.) activating the motor with the first fraction of the trigger pull instead of the switch
(b.) adding a disconnect switch/button which is mechanically activated by a custom holster

Anyway, I'm sure I'll be getting one (or more) eventually, because they should be excellent in mostly-stock office nerf.

I think that if you want to go with A., you should consider a 7.4v lipo for a battery (assuming the motor can take it). Should be pretty much instant motor on full, not to mention it should increase the range since this is a flywheel gun.

In Topic: Plastic Safe Lubricants

I notice there are a lot of posts in this thread going back and forth on what works and what doesn't.

This is what works FOR SURE and if you want to try other stuff, it's your blaster so feel free.

Look for a hobby shop in your area, the kind that carries radio control cars. Expensive, hobby grade stuff like Traxxas, Losi, Team Associated, HPI, ect. Go to this store and ask for silicone shock oil.

Silicone shock oil is almost pure silicone and is intended for o-rings and plastic, as well as abuse.

You will be asked what viscosity you want. You can get as low as 15 weight (15 through 30 weight will be best for plunger o-rings and will depend on personal preference, for the plunger I'd go with the thinnest stuff they have) to as high as 10,000 weight "differential grease", which is just super thick silicone grease. The diff. grease from 3,000 to 7,000 makes a good lubricant for sliding parts, it's honey thick and a little sticky and no matter how much you use the blaster, a thin coat will always be there.

This stuff isn't "cheap" cheap, but it is by no means expensive either. Expect it to be around $3-$5 a bottle, but that bottle should go a looOOong way.

Where are you hailing from, anyway?

I live in Santa Ana and work in Huntington beach, and I kinda know Glendora a bit because there is a little mountain road up there I like to hit on my R1.

The weekend of the new date for LANO I have a paid company Vegas trip, thats why I can't go. If it was anything else I would probably try to make it happen. I should be able to make it to some of these later wars you mentioned, though.

Wow, that location is less than two miles from me.

Put me down as a maybe. I don't know if I have to work that day yet, but if I don't then I will definitely be there with a possible +1. I should know by next week-ish.

Crap, this new date puts me out of my first (and possibly only) nerf war.

I was looking forward to this, too. I've been wanting to get out and actually play, the one thing about nerf I didn't like was that I never actually get to use the blasters I spend so much time modding. Hopefully there there will be another decent sized war soon.
